The ongoing crises in Plateau state, have been declared as a conspiracy against the FG with the intention of throwing the nation into a state of anarchy by the Bauchi state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).
Reverend Joshua Ray Miner, the state chairman of the Christian association, alleged in an interview that some politicians who are hungry to seize power at the national level, were sponsoring criminals to perpetrate heinous crimes in the northern part of the country.
The Bauchi State CAN Chairman said;
“There is a conspiracy somewhere against the federal government and it is this same conspiracy that has opened the borders of northern Nigeria to be infiltrated with criminals from neighbouring countries like Chad, Mali, Niger and Sudan.
“It is unfortunate that some people are hiding under the disguise of local Fulani herdsmen to perpetrate these killings and from what we are witnessing, they are heading towards the realms of power at the national level.
“If you look at the precision of the killing of innocent citizens and the manner in which these people carry out attacks with the use of swords, guns and knives, you will think it is the ordinary Fulani herdsmen doing the killings, but in the real sense, these people are trained killers who want to throw the country into a state of anarchy.”
Reverend Joshua Ray Miner who called on President Buhari to come up with stringent measures to checkmate the spate of killings in Plateau, Benue, Taraba and Adamawa states, advised him to replicate the same feat that was applied in stemming the spate of bombings and killings in Borno and Yobe states.
This is coming after CAN raised the alarm over alleged plans by armed men to attack Southern Kaduna and other areas dominated by Christians in some Middle Belt states. CAN said it had been informed that the planned attacks were targeted at Southern Kaduna chiefdoms and towns that included Gumel, Dagwarga, Daddu, Mariri and Kagoro, as well as hotels, the National Open University of Nigeria and other soft targets, in particular.
